Israel killed dozens of civilians in twin Gaza strikes, which the UN labeled a WAR CRIME
Israeli military forces killed a Hamas commander in a second strike at the Jabalia refugee camp in Gaza on Nov. 1.
Israeli fighter jets targeted a Hamas command and control complex in Jabalia, Gaza’s largest refugee camp. The attack resulted in the killing of Muhammad A’sar, the head of the anti-tank missile unit of the Islamic group.
The attack left the residents of Gaza desperately searching for survivors and trapped victims. “It is a massacre,” said one witness to the strike. Just a day earlier, an Israeli airstrike in the same location reportedly killed 50 and injured 150 more. (Related: World War 3 could be imminent as Israel-Hamas war escalates, experts warn.)
Israel claimed the frontend of the twin strikes resulted in the death of Ibrahim Biari, the alleged orchestrator of the Oct. 7 Hamas attack.
Meanwhile, human rights officials of the United Nations (UN) have condemned the operation and labeled it a war crime.
“Given the high number of civilian casualties and the scale of destruction following Israeli air strikes on the Jabalia refugee camp, we have serious concerns that these are disproportionate attacks that could amount to war crimes,” the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights posted on X.
The Israeli military officials justified their actions by claiming that “Hamas deliberately builds its terror infrastructure under, around and within civilian buildings, intentionally endangering Gazan civilians.”
Civilians trapped in Gaza begin journey to Egypt
While the Israeli military forces were striking the refugee camp, the first group of civilians trapped in Gaza has begun its journey to Egypt.
According to Egyptian and Palestinian officials, a minimum of 320 evacuees out of a list of 500 foreign passport holders are now headed to Egypt, with 49 of them requiring medical attention. A diplomatic source briefed on Egyptian plans indicated that approximately 7,500 foreign passport holders would be evacuated from Gaza over two weeks.
Meanwhile, Nahed Abu Taeema, the director of Nasser Hospital in Gaza, has revealed that evacuees from his hospital included 19 critically injured patients and children in need of advanced surgical procedures. The initial group of evacuees, including foreign passport holders and critically injured Gazans, reached the Rafah border crossing and underwent security procedures.
International assistance was also in sight for foreign passport holders, including citizens from Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Finland, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Jordan, the United Kingdom and the United States.
The United Arab Emirates has also stepped in to provide medical assistance, offering treatment for approximately 1,000 Palestinian children from Gaza. Additionally, Gaza border officials have reopened borders to allow more foreign passport holders to exit the region.
The evacuation agreement for foreign passport holders was confirmed as an independent initiative, unrelated to ongoing issues like the release of about 240 hostages held by Hamas or a proposed “humanitarian pause” in the conflict
